    Abstract

    Public and private stakeholders, including the industrialized countries vaccine industry, have since its launch in 2000 been a member of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (The GAVI Alliance), a public private partnership that strives to save children’s lives and protect people’s health by increasing access to immunization in the poorest countries of the world. This paper examines the R&D-based industry’s strategic intent and operational model, and contributions to innovation, supply and delivery of vaccines. Building on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) general concept of global access to medicines, the purpose is to provide insights into the commitments as well as challenges faced by the innovation-driven industry, and this in the following main areas: (i) The Quest for Global Health – Vaccines for the World; (ii) Availability – Innovation, Manufacturing and Supply; (iii) Affordability – Universal Access, Equity and Pricing; (iv) Adoption – Financing and Public Awareness; and (v) Alliances – Building a Strong Public Private Partnership.
